"Nigel's experience and expertise is accretive to the Robix management team, bringing with him a deep understanding of pollution control and hydrocarbon clean up technologies," commented Nathan Hansen, President and CEO of Robix. "I am eager to begin working with him and gain from his guidance and experience in technology development as we deploy our first commercial Clean Ocean Vessel ("COV") later this month. The COV is a catamaran style vessel that recovers oil from water and Nigel's expertise is a perfect fit with our product and the stage of development of the Corporation." Mr. Hansen continued, "I would also like to thank Rick for his contributions to the Robix Board. We will continue to benefit from his expertise through his leadership of our marine division."
In addition, Robix announced the appointment of The Howard Group as its strategic investor communications advisor.

Remuneration payable to The Howard Group is $7,500 per month and 150,000 incentive stock options, which will be granted when Robix completes a private placement, with the exercise price to be determined at the time of issuance.
"We believe that Robix is approaching a key milestone in a series of business events for 2015 with the planned February public unveiling and demonstration of its patented COV. Not only is it an oil spill recovery vessel with the ability to recover oil in rough and debris laden sea, it has the capability to simultaneously separate water from oil. In addition, we feel the technology's attributes will make it attractive for applications in ponds, lakes, rivers and the oil sands," commented Grant Howard, President of The Howard Group.
